If you have decided to give to the relief effort in Japan, I would like to recommend my friend Laura's blog. If you send supplies to Laura and Jerry, I personally GUARANTEE you the supplies will get to the people who were hardest hit by this tragedy. The best part is that along with the supplies, they will be taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Japan, as well!
I will be getting detailed instructions from Laura, probably this evening when she wakes up (they are sleeping right now - it is already Saturday night there.) :) So if you have any questions, let me know, and I will do my best to find out the answers for you.
